The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope
151. This version includes the following changes:
[ Chris Lamb] * Improvements and bug fixes: - Pass the absolute path when extracting members from SquashFS images as we run the command with our working directory set to the temporary directory. (Closes: #964365, reproducible-builds/diffoscope#189) - Increase the minimum length of the output from strings(1) to 8 characters to avoid unnecessary diff noise. (Re. reproducible-builds/diffoscope#148) * Logging improvements: - Fix the compare_files message when the file does not have a literal name. - Reduce potential log noise by truncating the has_some_content messages. * Codebase changes: - Clarify use of a "null" diff in order to remember an exit code. - Don't alias a variable when don't end up it; use "_" instead. - Use a "NullChanges" file to represent missing data in the Debian package comparator. - Update some miscellaneous terms.
